The lat­est Mini-re­lated an­nounce­ments.

For­mer Mini owner and cel­e­brated DJ, ‘Diddy’ David Hamil­ton, flagged off own­ers and guests at Dunsfold Aero­drome, home of the Top Gear test track, where they en­joyed some fast pa­rade laps of the cir­cuit be­hind a safety car, whilst be­ing bathed in glo­ri­ous sum­mer sun­shine.

Called ‘Minis at Dunsfold’ the event is or­gan­ised and hosted by Mini owner and en­thu­si­ast, Jon Spriggs, and is part of his fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties for The Ital­ian Job, the an­nual tour­ing event to Italy which, this year, will raise money But­tle UK.

David was on hand to en­cour­age own­ers tak­ing part to take up the last few places in this year’s run. Now in its 29th year, The Ital­ian Job, like Jon’s event, is open to Minis of all ages, shapes and sizes. The event takes par­tic­i­pants on a tour like no other, not only does it take in lo­ca­tions from the fa­mous film, but des­ti­na­tions off the beaten track are ex­plored as well, and lo­cal pro­duce is sam­pled. Or­gan­ised by Fred­die and Gi­u­lia St. Ge­orge, The Ital­ian Job has raised over £2.6 mil­lion for chil­dren’s char­i­ties to date.

Jon raised a bril­liant £3,551.24 at Minis at Dunsfold, which we think is a very im­pres­sive achieve­ment.

Af­ter wav­ing off the Minis, David stayed on hand to en­cour­age Ital­ian Job sign-ups. David Hamil­ton and Jon Spriggs.
